Marbled Paper Journals

The boy’s made marbled paper journals for my mom for Mother’s Day this year. We found the directions here.

These were easy to make and came out great and were very inexpensive! I think I am going to make myself one or two! I had all the supplies on hand except for the liquid starch.

Kaden made the pink one and Justin made the blue one! I used brown duct tape for the spines.

A tip if you decide to make them: you only need to pour enough liquid starch to just cover the bottom of your pan. If you pour in too much starch the paint sinks to the bottom.

Wow, Michele, these came out great. Congratulate the boys on a job well done.

This gives me lots of ideas for the kiddos.

Thanks for sharing.
